Prolimatech Unveils Genesis Black Series CPU Heatsink

The system has two separate arrays of fins as well as six 6mm cooling pipes and can carry up to three 120 mm or 140 mm fans. The manufacturer includes mounting equipment for two fans as part of the cooler package.

Prolimatech says the heatsink fits AMD's AM2, AM2+ and AM3 sockets as well as Intel's socket 775, 1155, 1156, 1366 and 2011.

The heatsink weighs about 800 g, according to the manufacturer and will also cool surrounding components "such as RAM, MOSFET, and the Northbridge chipset heatsink." The Genesis Black Series is on sale in the UK for £60 or about $94. There was no information when the device will make its way to the U.S.

    There are too many CPU heatsinks and too few GPU heatsinks.

    I wonder if the clearance will fit modern 'performance' memory with extended heatspreaders

    Agreed! I had a great passive heatsink for my 9800GT, and I hate that there is not something with a duel design like this for the gtx570. I understand there not being enough watt dispersion for the heat sink to be on a single side of the card... so have it wrap over to the other side!
